Not a patch on 'Silver Streak' or 'Stir Crazy'.
29 April 2001 | by CombermanSee all my reviews

Another turn out for the Pryor/Wilder duo which does have some funny scenes and amusing dialogue. However, Another You does drag its heels and seems to lose its way halfway through. Just a little too slapstick and not a patch on the fantastic 'Silver Streak' and very funny 'Stir Crazy. I'll give it a 5.
